My name is Oscar Wambuguh (wam-bow-gho). I have been teaching at California State University, East Bay since 2000 in Biology and Health Sciences. I primarily teach a combination of these courses (often several sections of the same course): BIOL 408, HSC 300, HSC 327, and HSC 499. In the years ahead (depending on Dept. needs), I plan to teach these courses: HSC 340, HSC 362, HSC 385, HSC 405, HSC 420, HSC 470, HSC 485, HSC 490, HSC 497, and HSC 498. I also direct the Pre-Professional Health Academic Program (PHAP) administered by the University Extension and the operationized in the College of Science. This is a formal post-baccalaureate program preparing students for doctoral careers in medicine (allopathic & osteopathic), dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, veterinary science, podiatry, graduate nursing programs (MSN, FNP, PhD/DNP), physical therapy and occupational health. Students must have completed a bachelor's degree in a science or non-science field to apply to PHAP. If you have questions, please email email@example.com.
My area of research focus is environmental health sciences. With the increasing anthropogenic activities causing untold effects on global climate change, mitigative strategies are needed to allow communities adapt to these changes. Climate change affects our natural sustenance systems that provide food, clean air, water resources, energy and many other resources needed to maintain ourselves. With such rapid changes in the world we live in, finding ways in which we can live more sustainably on this planet is of great interest to us, non-scientists and scientists alike. My research focuses on the conservation of biodiverse natural resources, effects of climate change, and the mitigative/adaptive strategies needed particularly in the world’s developing nations. I have written three books and published several articles on these topics.
